on cnn express. joining us from the missouri state fair. talk about getting the pulse of america, what are you hearing? >> reporter: we have been driving from atlanta to des moines and passed through georgia, tennessee, kentucky, illinois, missouri, heading into kansas and iowa. we're talking to people in places smaller than what would get media coverage about health care. as the health care debate was heating up on tv, we were trying to get a quieter discussion going. there was plenty of disagreement where we went. we ended up in an interesting place, northwestern kentucky on the illinois border. we had a bit of a town hall meeting. one was a democratic candidate who ran in the last election and lost. she had very, very strong views on health care. here is a bit of a taste of what she told us. >> well, my husband and i are two of the 47 million plus that don't have health care. i'm not talking insurance. i want health care. my husband had diabetes and a bout with cancer. what insurance company is going to cover us. if i get sick, i'm going to the emergency room. who is that costing? i
and the senate, are they going to be willing to be on the same plan they are asking us to be on? >> in fact, several democratic members of congress now have canceled their town hall meetings, we learned, at least one, represent brad miller of north carolina, is saying, he has gotten a death threat. that's what he is saying. now, if you were with us here tuesday, when we first started following the story, you heard a charge by a congressman, congressman lloyd doggett who joined me here. on video, you see him being chased from this forum on to a parking lot. he told us this isn't some ground swell of grass roots rage. he says it is being coordinated and scripted. >> i think the script is des sem nated through the republican party and websites that they are going through and through some of the private organizations that are helping orchestrate all this. >> now, i should say that there does seem to be some evidence that the congressman may be right at least in some part. i, and my staff, have watched video after video of some of these meetings. we hear many of the same slogans repeated again a
. >> an amazing, never before heard explanation of who these iranian basij really are from a man who used to be one of them. >>> look at this picture shall. the former president trying to win the release of two journalists. it's happening now on your national conversation for tuesday, august 4th, 2009. >>> hello again, everybody. i'm rick sanchez. this is a conversation, as we often say, no the a speech. as always, it's your turn to get involved. as we begin this particular conversation, there is another health care forum that has been interrupted. there seems to be a pattern going on here. have you seen some of the pictures that we've been showing from around the country? i want you to see this one for yourself. i also want you to make your own decision as you watch this. i am going to show you as much of this as we think is necessary for you to get a clear picture of what's going on. this is the latest example. green bay wisconsin, last night, democratic congressman and medical doctor, steve kagin, he called a meeting to discussion the crucial issue of health care reform since he is a d
with the actions of the mexican government. the mexican government has cooperated with us in efforts to stem this particular problem, to limit this particular problem and continues to work with us in ways we might reverse it. but the underlying problem as i said to president calderon and others, the underlying problem is in the canadian refugee laws and far too easy in canada to make a bogus refugee claim as a way of entering the country tli. we have to change that. it is unfair to those that are legitimate refugees and unfair to hundreds of thousands that are working their way through the immigration system. we will continue to work with mexican authorities to try and limit this problem, but in the absence of legislative change, it is very difficult for our government to control this, other than through the imposition of visa. it is the only tool available to us right now. we need additional tools from our parliament to stem the flow of bogus refugee claimants and also to have additional tools to deal with this kind of problem. >> alex panett amount, canadian press. >> translator: very impo
this in your e-mails as well, at what i think is a shift in how the democrats are approaching this. it used to be, this is the fringe. these are crazy people, the t bag people, the birthers. most of the town hall meetings are just fine. i think what they have seen is they have moved more against it than for it. >> the white house, it is becoming more assertive. >> they are. david axlerod sent out a six-page e-mail refuting a lot of what they called myths about health care. >> and asking recipients to keep forwarding it to their friends and neighbors. >> they are stepping up their offensive using the play books they used from the campaign, going viral and we will see the president tomorrow out in montana and colorado doing the same kind of town hall he did before. they are even trying to open these town halls up so they can refute these claims that they are stacking these town halls with people. >> here is a question that intreegs me. at these town hauls, these lawmakers go out there and have exchanges with their constituents, is it more likely that the lawmaker changes the view of the con s
